Lewis Carroll was a genius polymath, a writer, a photographer, a mathematician, inventor and a philosopher.

His observation on the nature of human progress was simple and is immortalized in his children book Through the Looking Glass.

“Now here you see, it takes all the running you do, to keep in the same place.”

“If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that.”


If you still need an explanation, here it is:
In order to stay where we are we need to keep running at the same place, because our world is always in the state of change.

Riding a stationary bike gets us further to nowhere. If we want to make progress we have to run twice faster than we do now.
